Hey, E-man, get your mass on, baby! Yeah! Just wanted to chime in real quick, give my boy some props, pointers and support (I’ll need some too:-). I’m currently embarking on my first journey into the Bulking Woods myself, brutha. It’s tough, but I’ve just got to keep overcoming lil’ mental blocks and pushin’ the envelope.
First off, way to set some goals for yourself, bro (10 pounds)…that’s a great start and gives motivation. Massive Eating is definitely a great route to go. Try not to get to anal or over analyze, just follow the principles and make sure you’re getting your fuel. Don’t be shy about carbs…you’re a youngin’, bro, we can handle those lil’ bastards! You probably have a good idea of what your caloric needs are, so just bump or shave off after some experimentation–and don’t forget to adjust throughout. Also, you know what my man JB says about low bodyfat…that the lean gains should be pretty dayum good, so you’re right on. I don’t know much about Nandro or Tribex–haven’t fooled with either.
As far as the thermos go, I like Kelly's advice. I would say don't go overboard, maybe just the T2 or the MD6 but I'm not sure you need both. If you do MD6, maybe just two before training or something along those lines. The zig-zag method will help keep that nasty bodyfat in check, and Massive Eating pretty much employs that principle. You can fool with that. I also would recommend not being afraid to throw in some cardio--not cardio-crazy though! JB has written many a time how it aids in LBM gains and nutrient partitioning in particular.
Like KB said, you know wassup, E-man, so I digress…good luck, buddy, and keep us all posted. If you want, throw out an outline of training and/or nutrition. I think it’d be pretty cool and you could get some feedback too. Latah, bro.
